The Corin Tucker Band is set to return with Kill My Blues September
18 on Kill Rock Stars. The follow-up to 2010’s 1,000 Years (reviewed here), it finds former Sleater-Kinney
frontwoman Tucker returning to her riot grrrl sonic roots along with band
members Seth Lorinczi (Golden Bears), Sara Lund (Unwound) and Mike Clark
(Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks). The group will tour the east coast this fall; dates
below.

 

Read our 2010 interview with Tucker.

 

Of writing and recording the new album, Tucker notes that Kill My Blues was a group effort. “After
the past two years playing together, traveling and making music, I think we’re
more comfortable,” she says. “We collaborated on every song on this record and
no one was shy about their ideas. I think you can hear that sense of joy and
abandon in the songs.”
